Link roundup

1. "A former Taco Bell executive who was arrested and fired after a viral dash-cam video showed him attacking an Uber driver is now suing that driver for $5 million — saying the driver illegally recorded the violent incident."

2. "The instant bread in Star Wars: The Force Awakens wasn't CGI"
'I’m gonna be famous for Star Wars for nothing else but this bread!'
3. "John Scott Gets Screwed Out Of His [NHL] All-Star Spot"
The inclusion of Scott, who has spent portions of the season in the AHL, was an intentional joke, similar to the attempt at voting in every Kansas City Royal for the MLB All-Star Game. The 33-year-old, whose biggest recent on-ice moment was a beef with Tim Jackman, has one point (an assist) this season. He hasn’t played in an NHL game since Dec. 31.

In December, Puck Daddy pushed the campaign for Scott because the idea of a 6-foot-8 lug with five career goals in the 3-on-3 tournament was amusing. The movement gained steam, and when the NHL announced the full All-Star rosters, sure enough, Scott was a fan-elected captain.
